  • Amy will be missed she always made everyone smile was a great person prayers for her family and daughter

  • I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to your family for the loss of your loved one, Amy. She had so many years ahead-so much to live for. Death is truly an enemy that robs us of the joy of being with our loved ones. The Bible has proven to be the best source of encouragement to cope with such a difficult time. The Bible at Isaiah 33:24 states: “No resident will say: ‘I am sick.’ The blessing of God will eventually include the elimination of all suffering due to poor health. Soon cancer, heart trouble and all other diseases that cause humans pain and unhappiness will simply not exist. I sincerely hope that this scripture from the Bible will bring your family much comfort and hope.

  • Donnie, Linda and Izzy,

    Cherish the memories you shared with Amy, that is something that can never be taken from you. Find comfort in knowing the love she had for all of you.

    We are thinking of you all here in Kentucky

  • Izzy, Linda and Don, – I am so sadden by your loss. You have my deepest sympathy. Amy was like another mother to Alexis, and Alexis thought the world of Amy. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.
